Sriracha Tiger Zoo is one of famous zoo in Chonburi, Thailand. Although its name is tiger zoo, there are not just tigers inside, but there are in fact a lot of animals in the zoo, such as camels, ostriches, crocodiles, elephants, and so on. However, the tiger word is included in its title because tigers are the first animal that the zoo focused on. Sriracha Tiger Zoo also presents a variety of tiger shows, tigers with fire-hoops, tigers climbing a ladder, for example. It's just like an interesting circus show, so this would make both you and your kids enjoys a lot.
Sriracha Tiger Zoo started taking care of tigers in 1982, where at the time the zoo obtained four couples of tigers from the Chiang Mai Zoo. Sriracha Tiger Zoo chose to raise tigers because of the preventing objective. In the past, there were a lot of tigers in Asia, which can be seen as a trademark of Asia, but at the present, there are significantly less than before. With the main objective, Sriracha Tiger Zoo can also earn information and educate those who are interested in animal study. At the present there are more than 400 tigers in Sriracha Tiger Zoo.
Since Sriracha Tiger Zoo is not located in Pattaya, we suggest visitors who do not have a private car to book a tiger zoo trip from the hotel tour desk, as this way will be the easiest way to go. On the other hand, those who want to go there by themselves can drive their car to the Sriracha Tiger Zoo by going from Central Pattaya to the bypassed way that connects to Motorway. About 30 Kilometers from the start of bypassed way, you will be able to see the sign of the zoo, which indicates that the tiger zoo is on the right hand side. After turning right, go straight on a little you will see Sriracha Tiger zoo. Another option is to hire a Taxi or Song Thaew to be there.
